Your love is like a carwreck and this time
I have gone through the windshield
What's one skipped heartbeat anyway?
After all I never believed you when you said
"I will be the end of you, we're in this together.
I will love you forever, so here's to us"

I always let you take the wheel when I know that you can't see
You always choose the nicest ways to share eternity
my heart races like it always does when I'm with you
tonight my heart stopped, but there was nothing you could do
at least that's what I tell myself...

Don't cut my brakelines
I'm tired of crashing
You hurt me enough with your words
I've done all I can just to save what we have
but i flatline again and again

I should have known it all along
I took you by the hand, you took me by the heart and you said
"kiss me one last time, but make it quick..
you know that I can't stand the taste
our love ended like a carwreck that night.

    General CommentAnother kickass Wester song, I like how they've used the whole car metaphor to describe the relationship.
